The third-tier of Formula 1 feeder championship will host its sixth round of the season in Barcelona this weekend and the Spain-based team is expecting to score a good haul of points with its trio of Peroni, Flörsch and Deledda
Campos Racing heads to northern Spain for the sixth round of the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship, which will take place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The Spanish F1 Grand Prix brings another chance to score more valuable points for the championship. Campos Racing will enter its three-car armada for Alex Peroni, Sophia Flörsch and Alessio Deledda, who are looking forward to completing a strong run in Barcelona.
Australia’s young ace Peroni has secured two podium finishes in the FIA Formula 3 Championship this season. Peroni stepped third onto the rostrum at Red Bull Ring’s season-opener round and claimed four consecutive points-paying finishes at the Hungaroring and Silverstone, including a third place in the latter. German female racer Flörsch has also put in remarkable recovery drives. She sets her sights on improving qualifying results to maximize chances later in the races. Italian Deledda continues growing as a racing driver and taking into account his experience in Barcelona he could well achieve his best result of the season in Barcelona.
The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, which has become a classic due to its long-term presence on the calendar, is quite well-known to all the drivers and teams as many tests take place there. The Catalan track features medium to high speed corners and, as a result of its abrasive surface, it is rather demanding for the tires, particularly for the left-side ones. In addition, high temperatures will be another hard challenge to cope with for the cars and the drivers themselves.
Practice and qualifying sessions will take place at 09.35 and 14.05 respectively on Friday. Race 1 is scheduled on Saturday at 10.25 with race 2 bringing the curtain down on Sunday at 09.45. All times are CET.
Adrián Campos (Team Principal of Campos Racing): “We are back racing in Spain for our home Grand Prix and that is a nice feeling. Unfortunately we will be there without our fans in the stands. Let’s see what the weekend bring us. Fortunately the Spanish Grand Prix was declared of national interest and people will be able to watch in on TV and have good fun. We are working to put everything in place and our goal is that our drivers be able to shine throughout the weekend.”
